The day-long Astrobiology Colloquium will be held at Georgia Tech and will consist of presentations by students and postdocs working in astrobiology and related disciplines. Talks throughout the day will be divided into a series of thematic sessions with students and postdocs also serving as session chairs. This series of talks will be followed by a poster session in the late afternoon, including refreshments, which will also provide time for research discussions and social interactions. A successful model of such an early career symposium is the annual Southeastern Biogeochemistry Symposium founded by Jennifer Glass in 2014, and now in its 5th year; Glass will provide advice to the organizing committee. The graduate student and postdoc members of the organizing committee will receive travel funds to help support a trip to a professional conference.
Check back soon for more details. The program is anticipated to take place in late March.
